closing out the harness meet at Hawthorne

The harness racing meet at Hawthorne has drawn to a close.  I’ll be back writing for the Illinois Harness Horsemen’s Association come the summer meet, but before we move on to thoroughbreds at 35th and Cicero, let’s visit my last pair of pieces from the winter meet.

For both, I talked to drivers, but they run the gamut of experience.

Issac Love is still a provisional driver — but he made the most of his drives at Hawthorne this winter, particularly with younger horses.

Ryan Anderson just crossed the 3,000-win threshold — he talks about his lifetime in the sport, and the most memorable horses along the way.

Thanks for reading all winter long, and I’m looking forward to returning to harness racing this summer!
